Images work fine. Is that a tear you’re zooming in on?

The media is drying out, I do not believe it is torn, I don’t like the way the media is curved on one end in particular though.

I quit using those filters. Now only Fram Ultra or Mobil filters.

I’ve seen that before. The media held up fine, but it was bent when it was glued into place.

I agree it was glued that way.

Thanks for the C&P.

You’re welcome of course.

The FL400S and FL500S at least seem to be reliable ...

This one was changed prior to its time because the shop is chasing a problem on the 3.7... oil and filter had no impact of course.
